Having a cup of coffee with Mrs Hornet yesterday, I spot a bloke wearing an Isle of Man T-shirt at the next table. "Yes, I bought it over there last year, had so much fun, you gotta go, 100th anniversary this year, etc etc..." "Do you ride?" "Yeah, I've got two bikes. Chassis 004 Yamaha RZ-500, never been raced, and Wayne Clarke's old superbike, still has the scratches on the pipe from when he last fell off it..." Makes you wonder what else is hiding in people's garages. I wonder where Andrew Turpie's Z-900 (sponsored by Captain Crankshaft's Cycle Centre) is these days?? And the XS-1100 chain-drive special that Dean Pitman built for the Coca-Cola 800 at Oran Park. And 'La Peca', Eddie Lopez's fabulous 900SS Ducati??
